A fine day for the Fiacaill Coire an Sneachda
Moon above the Fiacaill ridge
Sunrise above the Fiacaill Ridge
Towers of rime
Someone enjoying Point Five Gully
Coire an Lochain looking good
Ice forming on Fiacaill Buttress
Mess of Pottage
Coire an t-Sneachda and Cairn Gorm
Coire an t-Sneachda
What a stunning morning it was. Clear skies, no wind and full snow cover down to 700m in the Northern Cairngorms today. A fine day for another Fiacaill Coire an t-Sneachda traverse. Lots of rime ice on the crags and there is snow in depth in some places. Still hard work in the unconsolidated snow if it's not already trodden. The walk into Sneachda was superb. The sun was rising above the plateau and the moon was setting just above the Fiacaill ridge. Brilliant. By the time I got onto the Cairngorm plateau some cloud had drifted in from the west with the odd snow flurry. Below freezing on the summits. A cracking day to be out. Another one tomorrow!
